Millions of eyes are still glued to our capital, London, as the Paralympics opening ceremony takes place in the Olympic stadium tonight. With Queen Elizabeth officially opening the games and film director Stephen Daldry the brains behind the event, it is bound to be a event not to be missed. Including acrobatics, musical performers, celebrations of Britain’s history of science and discovery and a fly-over by Aerobility.
The fourteenth Paralympic ceremony will involve more than 3,000 volunteers including 50 disabled performers, a children volunteer cast of over 100, 4,000 athletes and 100+ professional performers, kick starting the most successful Paralympics ever.
The event, named ‘The Enlightenment’ has been described as ‘human understanding, limitations and the importance of knowledge’ by Lord Coe.
The parade will showcase all 162 nations taking part with every country taking the limelight, giving you the chance to cheer on your country or your favourite athlete!
